Adelaide: My opinion of adoption fairs

Adelaide

I'm looking for a new home.  My human parents split up, and so me and Mercedes (now called Princess) need to find a new home. Mercedes and I aren't related, but we were both adopted out by the same family when we were kittens. We're both real sweet, and were raised in a home with children and another cat.

My original post about me said:

I'm the sweet, quiet one.  I love people, and start to purr when you enter the room.  I love hiding under cardboard boxes and chasing pens. When people come back after being away for any amount of time I become a purr-box and demand to be petted and played with. I am also fascinated by mirrors and computer screens. I'm usually very quiet, but I do have a gentle mew when I have something to say.

The shelter had this to say about me:

Hi! I'm Adelaide and I am an active and fun kitten, looking for that perfect family to go home with.  I enjoy meeting new people, and have lots of cuddles to share.  I'm also spunky and playful, especially when I see little toy mice!  If you're looking for a sweet and entertaining young lady, then look no further. Ask to meet me today!

Aiden

Aiden

I was adopted by a family when I was a kitten, and returned a couple years later. It's an awful story, and I'm trying to move one, and I'm looking for another home, and someone to love me.

I've been a bit traumatized by having to leave my home and people, and so need a quiet foster home and people to understand what I've been through and be patient with me.

This is my original posting:

Me and my siblings were brought to the shelter when we were tiny babies, and we were all given names that started with the letter A. The Fat Cat people saw us and thought we were adorable, and took us in hopes of finding us our forever homes.

I don't like to brag, but I'm the good looking one.    I have a beautiful gray mask that covers my white face, and a little gray spot on my pink nose that just won't rub off.  I'm very gentle and somewhat cautious at first, but once I'm comfortable, I become very outgoing. I let my sister try things first, and then dive in right after her when it looks like fun. I love to chase my sister around the house, and I like all kinds of toys. I'm very friendly, and will sit in your lap and purr if you give me the chance.  When I'm sleepy, I lay on my side and stretch out twice my normal length so you can pet me. I'm a pretty laid back little guy and would make a great companion.

Pick me!

Blossom

Blossom

My brothers have all been adopted; I'm the only one left of all my 4 siblings.  My foster dad loves me lots, and thinks I'm real special: I'm smart and affectionate and love to be petted.  I'm little -- I'm not going to be a big cat -- and am told I'm very pretty because my coat has an unusual "ticked" tabby pattern. I like to have my tummy rubbed, and show my appreciation by making biscuits.

I'm rooming with a couple older, grown up cats, who aren't much fun and don't really like to play, so I've found ways to entertain myself.  My current fun thing to do is to run on my cat wheel, which looks just like this: www.onefastcat.com  It's great fun, and helps me burn those calories and gives me something to do.  I also like to play with toy mice (I'm fierce!) and trot around with toys in my mouth and growl to show to those big cats who's boss (they usually just look at me and sigh).  Anyway, I need a home of my own and my own human to love me.

Pick me!

Cissy

Cissy

My brothers and sisters and me were rescued from a shelter; we had colds and were going to be put to sleep.  But the Fat Cat people saw our pathetic photos and took us and gave us some medicine and now we're fine.

I'm alot of fun: I like to talk -- I purr, meow, squeak, chirp and trill, and love being around people.  I'm a very happy little kitten, and love to be held and kissed.  I'm very gentle, and start to purr and make biscuits as soon as you start to pet me.  I'm accustomed to being around other kittens and cats and I get along with everybody.  Black and white cats, or tuxedos as they are called, are known for their even, sweet temperaments (even though we're not exactly known to be real smart). But hey! who needs brains?  I just need a home!

Ella: My cat show pose

Ella

We were surrendered to a local shelter when we were about 6 weeks old.  We weren't very happy to be in the shelter -- we were scared and frightened and missed our mom --  and we hissed and spat at the shelter staff.  They decided we weren't "adoption candidates" and placed us on a "special needs list" -- in other words, if a rescue group didn't take us, we were goners.  Fortunately the Fat Cat people saw our photos and knew we'd settle down once we were out of the shelter and got lots of love and attention.

The best way you can tell me apart from my brothers and sister is that I have the smallest smidgen of white around my mouth.  I am very quiet, affectionate, and super cute.  When I was little, it took me a while to get used to people, but once I warm up to you, I will start purring right away when you pick me up.  I love playing with my brothers and sister.  There are two things in life that I think are just fascinating: a plastic cat toy with a spinning ball (I love catching the ball with my paws!) and looking out the window.  I hope I can find a forever home soon - will you adopt me?

Emma: Let's face it I'm gorgeous

Emma

We were surrendered to a local shelter when we were about 6 weeks old.  We weren't very happy to be in the shelter -- we were scared and frightened and missed our mom --  and we hissed and spat at the shelter staff.  They decided we weren't "adoption candidates" and placed us on a "special needs list" -- in other words, if a rescue group didn't take us, we were goners.  Fortunately the Fat Cat people saw our photos and knew we'd settle down once we were out of the shelter and got lots of love and attention.

I stand out from the crowd.  My brothers and sister look very similar, but I am the only one with a beautiful white blaze.  I am the shyest one - it takes me a while to get used to people, but once I do, I start purring right away when you pick me up.  I am pretty clever in finding places to hide, especially in a closet.  I am definitely not a talker - "quiet" is my middle name.  I hope I can find someone who can appreciate my sense of serenity and overall cuteness.  Will you be the one to take me home?

Imogene: I get the best bed

Imogene

My sisters and me were rescued from a local shelter.  Me and Irene still need a home.

I'm the beautiful tortoiseshell of the group.  I'm very talkative and really like people, though to be honest I'm getting kinda tired of going to adoption fairs every week and not having anybody pick me.  I just don't get it: I'm very sweet and smart and beautiful -- my coat is a gorgeous splatter print of black, brown and orange (did you know only female cats can be tortoiseshells?).  I'm also very curious, and am definitely a leader.  One of my neat attention-getting tricks is jumping on the window ledge so that I'm at eye level -- this way my foster mom can't miss me.  Irene and I like to visit our foster mom's laundry room, where we help her with the laundry by hiding in the pile of dirty clothes, sitting on the dryer and supervising her loading the clothes into the washer, jumping into the dryer (once it's opened) and sitting on the warm clothes, and knocking over the neat little piles of folded, clean clothes.  We know she appreciates the help.

Irene

Irene

We were rescued from a local shelter when we were just 3 weeks old.  We're a funny looking group: super thin and long-legged, kinda like feline greyhounds.  Our foster mom kept trying to fatten us up by feeding us and feeding us and giving us worm medicine (thinking maybe we had worms and that's why we didn't gain weight).  She just didn't understand that we're naturally lean kittens.  I think she wishes she was thin like us. Not a chance.

I'm the beautiful tabby of the group.  I love to explore: I make a bee-line for the closet as soon as that door is open, cuzz that's where the bag of kitten food is kept, and if I'm real quick I can tip the bag over and nibble a few bits before my foster mom says "not again".  That must mean she's proud of me, I just know it.  My other trick is to dash into the kitchen for a quick reconnaissance when I've got a chance; then my foster mom picks me up and snuggles me and tells me not to do that -- she's a softie.  After all that exploring, I need a nap, and like to curl up with Imogene or Cissy.

Louie

Louie

Meow! My name is Louie! My brothers and sister and me and my mom were taken to a shelter when we kids were just 2 weeks old. The Fat Cat people saw our photos and rescued us and found us a loving foster home.

Although Lincoln is the explorer of the group, I'm his right-hand cat, and assist him in exploring the house.  I let him do all the risky stuff of checking out a new situation, and once he gives the all-clear I come join him. All that exploring is exhausting, and one of my favorite things to do is taking long naps on my human's beds.   I grew up in a busy foster home with my three siblings and my foster mom’s three resident cats and several humans.  The Fat Cat people have been very impressed with my foster family, because all of the kittens they foster turn out to be amazingly sweet and mellow.

I would love to go to a home with lots of places to explore and toys to play with.  And it would be great if you could adopt me with Lincoln so we could explore together.  I hope to meet you soon!

Mercedes: Special delivery

Mercedes

Meow!  My name is Mercedes and I'm a talkative, energetic girl. I will greet you at the door
when you come home, and talk to you until you play with me!

My favorite hobby is exploring, especially the insides of cardboard boxes and anything crinkly or rustling. My favorite toy is a little pom-pom which I pick up in my mouth, carry around the room, and bat around with my paws.

I'm a smart kitty too. My foster mom is clicker-training me and teaching me new tricks! I can
come, sit, jump up on command, and I'm even learning to speak on cue. After we finish playing, I would love to sit on your lap and watch a movie with you.

Did you know black cats are the last to be adopted, and first to be euthanized at shelters? But did you know that black cats are considered good luck in Britain?  The Fat Cat Rescue people think black cats are really wonderful, and that God gave them great personalities so that people would love them.

Won't you please take me home?

My original post about me said:

Hi there!  My name is Mercedes.  I'm a gentle and loving kitten that is as cute as can be.  I will run and greet you and purr when you pick me up. I enjoy playing with my siblings and climbing high up on the cat tree.  I would love to be part of your family.

Pinky

Pinky

Hi, I'm Pinky.  My sister Polkadot and me need a home.  We are both big, beautiful kittens and can't figure out why we haven't had any luck getting a new home; our new foster mom loves us to bits and describes us as "beyond lovely."  It's a challenge to tell us apart, but I have a long grey streak on the top of my head, and Polky's are more like spots.

I'm the adventurous and curious one, and love to climb and jump.  My most recent project is trying to determine exactly who or what is on the other side of every closed door in my new foster home.  I'm very loving, quiet, mellow and gentle, and love to be around people, and purr loudly when I'm petted.  I like other cats, and am a brave girl -- I'm not even afraid of the vacuum cleaner.  I also love kisses on my head and will head butt you until you pay attention.

Pick me!

Polkadot

Polkadot

Hi, I'm Polkadot.  My sister Pinky and me need a home.  We are both big, beautiful kittens and can't figure out why we haven't had any luck getting a new home; our new foster mom loves us to bits and describes us as "beyond lovely."  It's a challenge to tell us apart, but I have a few spots on the top of my head, and Pinky has a long grey streak on the top of her head.

My foster mom describes me as loving, quiet, mellow and gentle. My favorite routine is to hunt and play with my fuzzy mouse, and then plop down on my back and ask to have my tummy gently rubbed. I'm a foodie, and like to eat!  I like other cats, and love being around people.  My foster mom says I'm a content little kitten that's always purring.

My siblings and me were picked up as babies from a large apartment complex in Sunnyvale.  Our mom had given birth to several litters over the years at the complex, and had developed quite a reputation among the residents.  The Fat Cat people offered to help get the cats fixed and find the kittens homes, and that is how we came to be Fat Cats, er Kittens.

Did you know that one litter of kittens can have multiple fathers?  It's true, and helps explain why all four of us look completely different (and confirms that our mom was a party girl).

I'm the runt of the litter. I'm the smallest and the most delicate.  All of my siblings have been adopted except ME!  I find that quite astonishing, since I'm the most beautiful, and have the most amazing whiskers you've ever seen.  I love to play chase with Daisy, who is my new best friend, since all her siblings were adopted and she's all alone now too.  I'm always the first to investigate a new cat toy.

Yoko

I have to admit my shelter photo makes me look pathetic. I was found and turned into the shelter when I was tiny and sick.  The Fat Cat people saw me and took me how and gave me medicine and now I'm all better.

I've been in several foster homes, so I've been around the block.  I'm still a little shy, and would do well in a quiet home without young children or dogs.  I love to be held and kissed and petted, and I've got a nice solid purr.  I get along well with other cats and kittens too.

Pick me!
